Laurie Hernandez has a big goal for 2017: The teenaged Olympic gold medalist wants to go on her first date, and preferably with someone who looks like Dave Franco. Check out the video below!

Hernandez was on Thursday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” when she made the admission. After winning gold at the Rio Olympics and then taking home the “Dancing with the Stars” Mirror Ball last year, the host wanted to know the 16-year-old’s “goals for 2017.” She candidly and adorably admitted, “I think I wanna go on a date. I’ve never been on a date before, so I think that would be a lot of fun.”

“Wait, wait, you’ve never been on date because you’ve just been working your whole life, right?” DeGeneres asked. “Wow. So, how are you going to do that? How are you going to meet a guy? What are you going to do? You have to have a plan.”

Hernandez confessed, “I don’t have a plan.” As the comedienne offered up some advice, the gymnast amusingly said, “If he looks like Dave Franco, then it’s fine.” As Gossip Cop reported, when Hernandez appeared on “The Ellen Show” last October, she was surprised by a video message from the actor.

This time, DeGeneres didn’t have him lined up as a date, but she did have another surprise for the athlete, thanks to “Law & Order” stars Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T. Watch below!
